Before & After

What is Nose revision?

After a nose job you can be dissatisfied with several things. The nose shape, implant placement, narrow nose tip, movement of implant, deformation of nose, and infection. Revision rhinoplasty requires more precision than regular nose jobs, and thus requires a highly experienced surgeon.

Appropriate for those who

  1. Have a nose that appears crooked
  2. Have a nose implant that is visible
  3. Have redness on the nose bridge and tip

Nose jobs have the highest level of discontent after surgery and thus, the percentage of revision surgeries is also high.

Due to the nose being centrally located on the face, subtle changes can drastically affect results causing stress.

Nose job revision is even more difficult than the original nose job.

Therefore, a thorough consultation with a well experienced surgeon is required to determine the cause and proper surgery to address the problem.


Nose job revision required cases


  • The area where the implant resides is slanted or not
    properly secured
  • An improper shape of implant was used

Revision method
The original implant is removed. Then, the area is properly adjusted and a new implant is placed.


The implant has moved


  • The implant is not completely settled between the bone and periosteum
  • During surgery, the periosteum is torn and the inserted implant is not properly secured.

Revision method
The original implant is removed. Then, the area is properly adjusted and a new implant is placed.


Nose tip change due to implant


  • An overly raised nose bridge
  • Nose tip raised via silicone
  • Skin becoming thinner or pressured

Revision method
Implant as well as cartilage is removed from the nose tip. Then, using cartilage and thick skin the nose tip is reshaped into a more natural look.


Structural issue


  • Inserted implant area becomes stiff and contracts causing the skin to be pulled
  • Untreated postoperative infection

Revision method
First, alleviate all swelling then using nose tip cartilage to the original length and shape. Then nasal septum cartilage is used to reshape the nose tip into a natural look.


Nose bridge being too high


  • Implant is used without fully considering the balance of the face

Revision method
After original implant removal a personalized fitted implant is inserted. For a bridge with little deviation, no implant is needed.


Narrow nose bridge


  • Implant used has short width
  • Skin becomes thin and implant is visible

Revision method
Original implant is removed, and a wider customized implant is inserted. In case of thin skin, Silitex, dermis, fascia, etc can be used to restore original nose thickness.


Drooped nose tip


  • A weak support structure in the nose tip compresses the cartilage of the nose tip.

Revision method
Nasal septum cartilage is used to strengthen and support the nose tip.

Ideal nose job revision timeframe

  1. At least 6 months after you have had recent nose surgery.
  2. Because hurried decisions can lead to complications, revision nose jobs should only be performed after swelling and other postoperative symptoms have subsided.
